El Dorado County Animal Services is searching for the owner of two dogs that bit a woman at Rubicon Bay on Aug. 31.
A 68-year-old woman was walking on Highland Drive in Rubicon Bay around 4:45 p.m. when two German Shepherds, off leash and running next to their owner’s truck, approached the woman and bit her leg, a press release stated.
The owner of the dogs stopped and provided contact information to the woman, but the information has since proven incorrect.
The dogs were described as pure-bred German Shepherds, black and tan in color. Another man accompanied the owner.
While the injuries were non-life threatening, Animal Services is seeking the owner to verify that the dogs are current on their rabies vaccinations. Without verification, the woman may need post-exposure treatment.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Animal Services at 530-573-7925.
